Best Day Ever!
I can not say enough about our experience at the Elegance Ballroom! We had the most perfect day! Everyone was so helpful from planning to details to suggestions and making sure everything was perfect the day of. The ballroom was beautiful, the cocktail hour was wonderful, the food was amazing. I still have people telling me what a beautiful wedding it was and how delicious the food was. I was able to stay at the hotel the night before and got ready in the Diamond Suite which is absolutely beautiful. Also my husband and the guys got ready in the Den Suite which was perfect. The location is great, there are so many beautiful places near by to take pictures. So many great things about this venue, you wont be disappointed! Make sure you also check out the photographer who is partnered with the venue.... Fade To Black New York Inc... they were amazing!Sent on 09/02/2020

I had my wedding after party here and I highly recommend this hotel. They kept the bar open as late as I wanted them to, and even let us sit in the outside patio (& turned on the fire pit) for my guests when it got cold. They were great to work with for my hotel block as well. Amanda and Renee were responsive and took down details for the shuttle bus service so my guests wouldn't be confused. They were wonderful!Sent on 09/11/2018
